View Full Version : FS: 1996 GSX in Austin 109k $6500

Details on this page:

It's a black 96 that's been updated to a 98 Fascia (headlights, front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, and spoiler). It has 109k miles on it, 24k on the new motor. I got the car when I had about 81k miles on it in 2001 from the original owner and I had the bottom end replaced since it had crank walk. New bottom end is not showing any signs of it.

There are 2 problems with it right now, low compression in 3 cylinders (head gasket is probably blown) and the turbo has a possible crack at the wastegate flapper probably. If I had the time, I would have a leakdown test performed and send the turbo to FP for them to look at. It also has paint fade so it could use a paint job.

If you have the time to work on it, this would be a great project car. The tranny is track ready yet still street drivable. Timing belt was recently done, starter rebuilt, AC replaced with a unit from a 98 that was barely used (gutted for track only car). Water pump replaced around 90k. Car was only tracked once and street raced very little. The one time it ran at the track with the factory diff, it ran a 13.7.

Basically, the car and mods are worth around $13,240 if you buy all the parts new and put them on this car. I'm looking to get $6,500. The car is located near Austin and you would probably want a flat bed to take it where you want.

hey where and how much did you get the engine for??

i ordered it from tallahassee mitsubishi with the dsm discount and had it shipped to houston. it's a factory rebuilt short block. i don't think there are any new short blocks, they are all rebuilt by the factory.

You don't have the place or tools to do all of this? I could do all of the work for a fairly big discounted price on the car.

06-12-2006, 11:05 PM
i think i'll pass. it won't be worth the time. to sell the shell minus labor to have the stuff removed. if i part it out, i'll let you know.

06-13-2006, 01:31 PM
